In last nights Presidential Debate there was one thing on everyone’s mind. Was Obama going to fight back?
After the previous debate between Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama America watched as Romney bullied and attacked Obama as if he was instigating a fight. However last night Obama rose to the occasion and showed Romney he means business.

Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney Official Video
News & Politics: The second presidential town hall debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in the run up to the general election in November.
If you watched the debate last night, the video above or just highlights im sure you can agree that if Obama had been like this in the first one chances are more than likely the race would have been over. Obama was loud assertive straight forward and serious. He didn’t back down to Romney when he was attacked and he attacked back. When watching the video you feel the atmosphere in the room as if you were there and Obama was the one to control the night.
Obama’s main point of view or argument: Don’t let Mitt Romney fool you; he’s a rich guy out to protect the interests of the well off, not the middle-class.
Obama put Romney on the spot when he mentioned things like the Republican presidential nominee paid a lower rate on his millions than ordinary working-class folks do on theirs, Romney has invested heavily in China. He also referred to Romney’s tax plan asking for details but Romney fell short in giving any straightforward or real answer.
Furthermore when approached on those issues Romney’s only way out was to ask Obama “have you checked your pension?” the same thing he asked Newt Gingrich.
Obama was cool and calm enough to come back with, “I haven’t looked at my pension; it’s not as big as yours.“
All in all it was definitely Entertaining, Interesting and Fun to watch. However this is a serious topic and we look forward to the next 3 weeks. There is 1 more debate scheduled and election time is right around the corner.
